    Need help with grading

    Hi everyone. I collected all three major sports in the 90’s and 2000’s and most were SP and SPA and other higher end cards and I think I have some nice cards (Duncan rookies, Jeter rookies, 2009 SPA football signatures, etc) along with a Jordan collection and Ripken Topps rookie set and my question is whether I should bother with getting cards graded or sell as is? I’ve flirted with the idea before and looked into Becket but I didn’t understand what they were saying to do and how the pricing worked. Can anyone share some insights?

    Welcome to the site!

    I would say the decision to get them graded would be based on the condition of the cards and what versions of the cards you exactly have. It varies greatly with somebody like Derek Jeter. You can have a rookie worth a couple of dollars versus hundreds so obviously you would be more likely to want to grade the higher valued Jeter versus the lower end one. But like I said the condition is the biggest factor. Any "damage" you can see with the naked eye basically would DQ a lot of those cards from getting graded but if they look perfect many of those would be great conditions for getting them graded. Maybe post some pictures of what you have if you can and get an idea from the veteran graders on here if they would grade the stuff you have or not.
